Details injury after Aussie Open win
Abdomen
February 22, 2021
Djokovic said Sunday following his victory over Daniil Medvedev in the Australian Open final that he will require some rest from competition after sustaining a "definite tear" of his abdominal muscle earlier in the tournament, Sam McClure of The Melbourne Age reports.
ANALYSIS
Djokovic first appeared to sustain the abdominal strain during his third-round victory over Taylor Fritz on Feb. 12, but he proceeded to play through the injury and turn in convincing wins over Milos Raonic, Alexander Zverev, Aslan Karatsev and Medvedev en route to claiming his 18th Grand Slam title. The 33-year-old said the injury worsened as he continued to play through it, so he'll likely take at least a couple weeks off before making his return to competition.
